Nike unveils its latest Kobe 11 colorway, taking cues from Kobe Bryant’s days as a kid watching old school VHS tapes of basketball games sent by his grandfather. The design on the back of the shoe mirrors the SMPTE color bars used for testing and calibrating monitors often included at the beginning or end of these tapes.
